In addition, we select one or more additional good causes every year, In 2022, our chosen beneficiaries were:
- Livability Icanho
Livability Icanho specialises in supporting adults who have suffered a brain injury or stroke. Providing a quality service since 1998, they are committed to designing bespoke rehabilitation packages, mostly working with adults aged 18 or over. The main centre is Stowmarket, with a satellite base in Bungay.
- Blossom Appeal
